First a quick note: Goodreads calls this "Assiti Shards, #3" but in the recommended reading order this is in pos 6 or possibly 5 (1634 Ram Rebellion can be read before this one without any real loss).

In the widely sprawling fictional universe conceived by the book 1632, we have now reached Venice and the catholic church. President/Prime Minister Stearns sends his best medical people and best priests to represent USE (United States of Europe) in Venice, the most powerful, reachable, catholic state that isn't already actively hostile.

While the adults teach medicine the Stoner children hear about Galileo being imprisoned and make plans for a big jailbreak.

I find the book less convincing than I would like. Of course the base premises are not really plausible with a whole town transplanted 350 years backwards in time, but I think that humans will remain humans, and this book seems more like slapstick at times, and humans are way too one dimensional. That was a criticism I had of the first book in the series, and of a few other Eric Flint books, but then there were a few that were better. This is worse again.

So while I still enjoy seeing the universe evolve, the path there can become tedious.

2.5 stars. I ended up with 2 to differentiate it from other books in the series. ( )

The Galileo Affair is where the Ring of Fire series really begins to show its promise. With a much tighter cast of characters and plot than its predecessors, we're able to get a deep, rather than a broad, look at the setting and really develop some fun plot threads. It's vastly less focused on military matters (I like David Weber fine, but I'm just not as interested in guns as he is) and the Stone family is a nice counterpoint to the otherwise fairly idealized blue-collar main characters.

On that note, the fact that the Stones were created by Mercedes Lackey for a short story and then rolled into this novel (as well as the use of scenes written by an experienced pilot in some of the other books in this family) is just a fascinating use of intellectual resources. This series wins a lot of goodwill from me by being collaboratively-if-not-communally written in a way that I believe is unprecedented in modern fiction. ( )

This book is wildly different from the earlier books, which is a good thing. I am sure I will not get bored with re-reading the same thing over and over, which is what many series seem to be. It is a combination of serious discussion of 17th century problems and a fillip of the Keystone Kops humor. ( )

A complicated book about the trial of Galileo and the beginnings of church reformation in the 1632 universe. ( )

Back in the 17th century, you could be completely driven out of society or executed for having new ideas. Coming from a 21st century democracy, how would you deal with that?
